Back Story

This tree is growing by the side of the river Cam at King’s College, Cambridge. It has long been associated with Xu Zhimo,徐志摩, the great Chinese poet. He went to King’s in the early 1920’s to study politics, sociology and history but whilst there he had an epiphany and started to write poetry. He was to visit twice more during his brief life and after the second of these visits wrote the poem, Saying Goodbye to Cambridge Again, 再别康桥. This poem is learnt by heart by schoolchildren throughout China as an introduction to poetry. There is a memorial stone to Xu Zhimo and garden adjacent to the bridge and next to this willow tree.

    This is Haute Couture quality. The finest colour, fabric and aesthetic of any accessory I have seen. I have been used to attending the fashion circuits of London Fashion Week, New York Fashion Week, Paris Fashion Week and Milan Fashion Week and I would regard this as an essential item to travel with to all of these events. I have given it as a gift, in its unique stylish packaging, to my family and friends and each recipient has been so appreciative. I love it.
